Description

Abstract

Material designers and engineers in the transportation industries often seek to increase the utilization of magnesium alloys in their products and applications. However, mass production of complex parts is often challenging, leading to significant compromises in material performance or part geometry.

In this presentation, the recent progress on the methods to overcome technological challenges related to the manufacturing process are discussed. Also, the refinement of microstructure of automotive magnesium alloys with ceramic additives prepared by Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS) process will be discussed and related to hot tearing.
